Has someone hacked your email account or pretended to be you?
If someone gains unauthorised access to, or impersonates your email account, they can intercept or gain access to your private communications, or send emails pretending to be you. With access to your email account, a cybercriminal can commit fraud, or blackmail you by stealing your financial or other sensitive information. If someone is impersonating you, they can convince others to click on malicious links, open malware attachments, steal sensitive information or steal their money.
Head of the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC), Ms Abigail Bradshaw CSC, said malicious cyber actors are actively targeting Australians. ‘As we shifted online to go school work or work from home or buy things, or keep communicating, the criminals have also shifted and really prosecuted our online lives to make money or steal our information..’.
